Mysterious ross island

Amazing gone by era can be seen on this island. Now completely in ruins after tsunami and earthquakes. But still the adventure, history and mystery of this island make it worthy. You can spot peacocks, deer and rabbits roaming freely. It's strange to know that at one point of time it was occupied by Britishers who had houses and bakeries as well, which you can spot now as well .. Go for it!

Island with beauty, history & pets

Ross Island is a beautiful tourist spot near the Andamans and is suitable for a half-day visit along with the North Bay Island. Many of the Andaman tour packages reserve one day for these two islands in their tour plan. In North Bay beach you can perform water sports such as snorkelling, scuba, glass boat journey, etc and can visit the Ross Island thereafter or vice versa.

It has the ruins of the administrative headquarters of the British officers who managed the administration of the cellular jail in Port Blair, Andaman. Ruins of church, cemetery, powerhouse, bakery, bazaar, etc can be seen there. Near the entrance you can see our National Flag flying in the breeze - a large one. In front of the ruins of Officer's Quarter is a favourite place for taking photos, as it is popular through many of the film song visuals.

Another attraction is the human friendly animals and birds which will come to you without fear. Deers, Rabbits, Squirrels and Peacocks will move very close to you and will even take food from you. Take a selfie with them or let the children pause a photo with them! Beware of the deers as sometimes they would take away eatables from children.

The island is full of coconut and other huge trees. By a round trip you can cover the island. From the small coffee shop in the island you can have tea & snacks. Since you have to return to Port Blair by 3. 30 boat, you may keep an eye on your watch and plan your timings so as to reach the boat jetty on time.

Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Island(Ross Overview

Ross-Island, once the administrative headquarters of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, is now a major tourist attraction. The island, located around 2 km east of Port Blair, can be visited by short boat rides. The destination is under the control of the Indian Navy. Every year, numerous tourists visit the place to see the remnants of pre-Independence India.

The name of the island was derived from the name of a marine surveyor, Sir Daniel Ross. In 1857, the British took possession of three islands around Port Blair and Ross Island was one of them. It remained the actual capital of the group of islands for almost 73 years under the British rule. An earthquake in 1941 shook the island and huge buildings collapsed due to the natural calamity. After that, the British shifted their capital to Port Blair, near Ross Island.

Situated a couple of kilometres away from the capital Port Blair, this place has an important place in Andaman and Nicobar’s history. This place depicts the affluent life of generals and superintendents of the British army. It still has structures from the colonial era, especially the Chief Commissioner’s house, church, hospital, bakery, ballroom, tennis courts, officer messes, granaries and troop barracks.

All the buildings are almost in ruins and represent British lifestyle. There is a graveyard and a small museum called Smritika, which has a collection of age-old records on the island. It is managed by the Indian Navy.

There is a church, now in ruins, and it represents British architecture. Ross Island is accessible from Phoenix Bay Jetty. Boats are available from the Phoenix Bay jetty to Ross Island seven days a week. The island is open to the public for all days except Wednesday.

The only way to explore the island is by foot. Ross Island is pretty small and there is no local transport to take tourists around the island. It takes just a couple of hours to explore the entire island. There is just one small shop on the island from where tourists can buy snacks and soft drinks.

The nearest airport to the Ross Island is the Vir Savarkar Airport in Port Blair, which is connected to Kolkata and Chennai. Andaman is well linked to Chennai and Kolkata by sea. Regular cruises are available from these ports to Port Blair and the journey takes close to 60 to 66 hours. The port of Visakhapatnam has cruises to Port Blair, once a month.

The best time visit Ross Island is between October and March.
